I've been coming to Denmark to see family for many years and have always made a point of visiting Egeskov. It's slightly expensive but not overpriced as you can easily make a day of it. The castle itself has 3 floors of rooms, most of which display original furniture and artwork and doesn't feel as museum-y as many similar places. I say this because you feel somewhat more freedom when walking around and there aren't security guards lurking at every corner. Definitely check out Titania's Palace, the doll house that used to be at Legoland.
The gardens and grounds are beautiful as well and the café in the old stables offers good food options with a nice seating area outdoors. The main comment I have is regarding the time of year to go. I'm used to visiting Egeskov during the summer. While pleasant and (generally) without rain it can get very crowded with all the strollers, school children and your token rude German tourists. We went mid-September and not only was the weather still beautiful, there were so few visitors we might as well have had the place to ourselves. This was especially nice given that my grandmother doesn't walk very fast and there are no elevators. So we could take our time with stairs, etc.
All in all, well worth the trip. Denmark is such a small country, I recommend making the trip to the Castle no matter where in the country you happen to be at.
